Whether you are a small business or a solopreneur, when your business starts to grow, the question of hiring a virtual assistant will come up.

You know that there are a large number of tasks that need to be done during the day. Some which seem impossible to do. However, this is also a big step to take for your business. So to determine if you are making the best business decision, you may want to evaluate the reasons why getting extra help is a good idea.

Keep reading to learn how you can easily evaluate your business to determine if you need extra help. Plus I’ve got some food for thought if you’re worried about cost.

To Hire Or Not To Hire A Virtual Assistant – That Is The Question

The main reason why anyone would hire a virtual assistant is because there is too much work that is taking away from things that they should be doing, such as networking.

And the main reason for NOT hiring a V.A. is cost. Although the business is growing, the revenue may not quite be there to pay a V.A. just yet.

The best way to evaluate on whether you need to outsource to a virtual assistant or not is to make a list of all your responsibilities. If the list shows you are spending most of your time on administrative work then a virtual assistant may be your best bet. This is especially important if you have noticed that your business is beginning to grow or expand.

If You’re Worried About Costs

Hiring a V.A. will depend on where your business is and what type of help it needs. If you are growing considerably, it might be in your best interests to hire a full-time or part-time employee. However, if you’re not sure if you will have that much work to support a full-time V.A., a virtual assistant is still a better option. And that’s because the work is contractual. Meaning that if there is no work, you don’t pay them.

    Hi Cori,
    Some people would say it all depends on the individual whether he hires a VA or not. However, the digital marketing space is ever-evolving, with trends and strategies, it can be challenging to handle all the workload. So ideally, hiring a VA is a fantastic investment. It allows you to focus on other vital areas of your business.
